Best 80s Action TV Series Challenge: Elite 8 Brackets

The 80's had a shitload of popcorn style action shows.

I did my best to go through every 80's debut to pull out the Top 16 and ranked them 1-16 based on my own criteria: longevity & syndication.

Seeds:
1. Magnum PI
2. MacGyver
3. Miami Vice
4. Star Trek: Next Gen
5. A-Team
6. Knight Rider
7. Airwolf
8. Quantum Leap
9. Greatest American Hero
10. Hunter
11. Simon & Simon
12. Remington Steele
13. The Fall Guy
14. Blue Thunder
15. Riptide
16. China Beach

Round 1 Results:

(1) Magnum PI defeated (16) China Beach 32-2

(2) MacGyver defeated (15) Riptide 33-2

(3) Miami Vice defeated (14) Blue Thunder 30-5

(13) The Fall Guy defeated (4) Star Trek: Next Gen 23-12

(5) A-Team defeated (12) Remington Steele 25-8

(6) Knight Rider defeated (11) Simon & Simon 25-10

(10) Hunter defeated (7) Airwolf 19-15

(8) Quantum Leap defeated (9) Greatest American Hero 27-7

1. One vote per username
2. Round 1 will last thru Friday



Round 2:

(1) Magnum PI vs (8) Quantum Leap

(2) MacGyver vs (10) Hunter

(3) Miami Vice vs (11) Knight Rider

(5) A-Team vs (13) The Fall Guy
